Language used in the book is scientific, but easy to be understood by any mathematician. Apart from the abovementioned features, all the chapters highlight the hot research issues in every field. The book begins with a chapter on Philosophy of Mathematics by Camino Canon (University of Comillas). The second chapter is devoted to Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, written by Jos\'e Munoz Perez (University of Málaga). Luis Rico (University of Granada) and Modesto Sierra (Universidad de Salamanca) write a chapter about Mathematics Education, and Jacinto Gonzalez Pachon and Isabel Rodr{\'\i}guez Galiano (Politechnical University of Madrid) write other chapter on Statistics and Operational Research. The seventh chapter is about Mathematical Logic and written by Alejandro Fernandez Margarit (University of Seville).
